The Delhi High Court today extended till August 18 the interim bail granted to a former Congress councilor, serving a life term in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, to enable him to arrange funds to pay his lawyers.

A bench of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Anu Malhotra granted the relief to Balwan Khokhar who has sought an extension of bail until October to finalize the sale of his properties.

The court while extending the bail till August 18 asked the CBI to verify Khokhar’s claims that he has received a consideration of Rs four lakh and sale would be finalized by October.

His application for extension was moved as the 14-day bail granted to him by the court on July 20 had expired.

Congress leader Sajjan Kumar had been acquitted in this riots case by the trial court but Khokhar was convicted along with four others.
